Dori Monson = Moron, Nods I
Lt. Bryan Suits = Stir Unstably
The Commentators = Stomache Torment
Sound Politics = Lo! Con Is Stupid!

Duffman

Good stuff, LM ! :o)

Duffman

Michael Hood = A homeochild ? :o)

Duffman

Or...doesn't this one fit perfectly:

mercifurious = Uremic If Sour

Hey, what can I can; slow time at the 'ol Blathering factory!

Duffman

Hey, what can I can say

Duffman

...and finally:

Republican = Renal Pubic

Apt, don't you think?

Duffman

"..but underneath his flight suit is a full ‘basket’ --- a genuine fake penis, apparently constructed with lifelike silicone."

Laura reports: it's an exact replica !!

Bill

The Styble-head takes a lot of crap from people on this site, me included from time to time.

But one thing does come through when listening to him and chatting with him....the man truly loves the medium of radio.

So I gotta' ease up a little on him because he still has a passion for this biz that's sadly lacking in most people who profess to be 'broadcasters'.

Duffman

Yep, have to agree Bill - the man is definitely 'radioactive' !

Lazy Murrow

Blathering Michael = Charitable Helming

Duffman

..and as I bid adieu:

George Bush = BUGGER HOES

:O)

Duffman

As an aside:
Do you suppose there's any substance and/or creditability to this? Could It Be??

If so, it will certainly be interesting to see how our candidates might react?

Tommy008

Styble seems to have improved somewhat. I'll say this for him- HE HAS A MORE PROFESSIONAL VOICE AND DELIVERY THAN EITHER SHIERS OR MONSON. Until KIRO REHIRES Prell or springs for a pro from back east, Styble would actually be better than Prell or Monson doing a 15 hour a week shift. Shiers with his provincial, nasal voice and delivery sounds like old Uncle Phelps at the crackerbarrel store. Monson- well, need i say anything about Monson to you at this point? I htink we all know what he is- a conceited little narcissist and prig who likes to drop the word (i don't believe it) from time to time that he was offered a syndicated radio job but turned down the big money to stay in his old hometown. As I MENTIONED BEFORE, what radio network makes hosts relocate with the level of technology we've had in the last 12 years? When was this job offered? 1975?

Tommy008

better than Shiers or Monson, i meant to say

Duffman

T008 Yes, I tend to agree..I see worth in genuine passion for one's trade. Regardles of his content (at this point) Styble displays a real zeal for radio and for the position he's trying to obtain. KIRO could do (and has) done a lot worse. Folks (like some herein) who are trying to tear down his character would do well to examine their own passion for ANYthing - short of hate talk. You know when you really think about it, everyone's passion s/be appreciated unless it's directed in an illegal manner. Let Ye who is without sin cast the first stone w/be apt.
Stybe..I wish you the best; I'm sure there are MANY things in store for the KIRO group (as Bla'M has hinted) and you know what dude...I hope you are in their plans.

Brian

I must say that Bryan Styble has much improved. He's a fine broadcaster who should be given a chance at KIRO at a showtime that he can get more exposure.
I think we have been pretty mean to Bryan on this blog, and I am sorry for that.

Bill

Well, that's why I mentioned Bryan Styble. Yeah, his 'use 10 words when 3 will do' style can drive me nuts sometimes....

But I really do admire his love for the radio business. Hey, the guy's beginning to grow on me, y'know?

sparky

They have an ointment for that, I believe.

Bill

Cute.

My doctor who makes house calls said a salve would do the trick.

Tommy008

more support of my accusations of S.P.D. beat officers being unpleasant, badgeheavy pricks harrasing noncriminals and letting criminals do their thing downtown- who could be surprised at Mondays shooting at 3rd and Pine at 4 in the afternoon who's spent any time sampling the manacing, thuglife atmosphere brewing down there this summer."The polce here aren't terribly friendly. The cops in New York you can ask them for directions or to pose for a picture with them- and they're polite"-Matt, a downtown office worker on Shiers for Dori today. Also from Matt-"A guy was recently beaten to a pulp by a group of thugs, on the hood of a cab, downtown recently, while a S.P.D. cop sat in a Starbuck's and watched. A citizen had to yell at him to come out. He finally came out and said "ok guys that's enough." Reports of brazen bums and degenerates stealing salds off of office workers lunch tables in Steinbrueck Park, and generally ruling the park. Folks we've obviously got a problem with our S.P.D. assholes, AND THEIR INCOMPETENT AND/OR INDIFFERENT response to crime and problems downtown. Girlykowski must go.

sparky

yet another reason to spend my money in Portland instead of Seattle.....

Duffman

As long as you pay a 'compensating use tax' on the value of the materials when you bring them into Washington my dear!...and I'm sure you do that, don't you? :o)

sparky

Hell no.

Duff Stuff:

Well well well. Duffman hearts Herr Styblehead. Why am I not suprised?

Not only are they both incredibly boring (Styblehead with a 0.08 rating, & Duffman adding a net zero to BW content), they've both made incredibly wretched, ammoral & unfounded statements:

Nate exhibit-A:
Styble claims being a slave in U.S. better off than being free in Africa (and racially smears Anfernie Hardaway's Mom & 'Afrocentric names') - all this to "celebrate" Black History Month (sieg heil!)

Nate exhibit-B:
Duffman exhibits his Christ-like tendencies by smearing Cindy Sheehan - Comparing the loss of her son to "crying over spilt milk".

Birds of a feather, really.

Hey Duff - Do you actually agree with the vile that Styblehead emitted that night?

mercifurious

Full Disclosure:

Every deleted comment on Styblehead's new website is from me. BUT not one post exhibited any kind of Bry's most-hated "scatalogical language"

No, this time Bryan is showing his allergic reaction to another form of language: truth telling

Duffman

merci, merci, merci whaaaatz up dude...don't you know 'I love you man' why do you antagonize me such. Of course I do not agree with Stybe on that...as I do not agree with my mother on certain things but come on man...this guy has a passion. Would you deny that passion a place on the radio spectrum at some time in a 24-hr period? How hard is that...it give you yet more ammunition to attack him. After all - he is your 'claim to fame'....WHATever!!!

Duffman

Hell no.

Oh Oh...prima facia evidence that sparky is not doing her fair share...please report to Wash State DOR Bla'M...:o)
Expect 'visitors' Sparks!

spark

As we would expect, Faux Noise is reporting that "illegals" were working on the bridge that collapsed in Minneapolis, and that it is "too soon to tell" if terrorism was involved--this after local Homeland security officials and structural engineers have determined that no explosives were involved with the collapse.

coiler

I bet illegals were working at Faux when their ratings began to slide, too.

sparky

Bingo! VG

sparky

The victims have not all been found yet, but this morning Bush found a way to blame the Dems in Congress for the disaster in Minneapolis. At the same time, he praised the efforts of the Republican Governor of Minnesota, who just vetoed a bill that would have provided money for the infrastructure needs of the state. They all have shit for brains. Bush, the pResident who has taken the most vacations of any prez, had the balls to stand there this morning and criticize Congress for leaving for the August recess, while Laura is upstairs packing their bags for his annual August brush clearing vacation. The man needs to be removed NOW.

nevets

Sparky crying again, boo hoo. Lets all show some sympathy for her.

coiler

hey nevets, go fuck yourself....in the words of your pathetic VP.

nevets

Coiler, mommy letting you on the puter again I see. Summer vacation almost over, hope you got your reading assignments done.

nevets

Sounds like Coiler has a little crush on the ol' Sparks. Must be a teachers pet thing. Have you got your apples ready for the first day of school there Coiler.

And I hope your mommy doesn't catch you using them foul words as she just might have to wash that dirty mouth of yours with soap.

Soapymouth

Me tinks: sparky=coiler=sparky

sparky

You're projecting again, Duffman.

coiler

Indeed...
